I would never take a shot likt this, I would run as much I could!!!!!!!!!!
But your shot is so perfect and beautiful that I wonder how could you not shake your hands and camera....
Cheers from Portugal, where I hope will never see snakes in my garden, .... although they exist (of course...), Su

What a stunning image of this beautiful creature! The diversity on our fragile, yet tenacious planet is amazing!
YOu did a really wonderful job of capturing this. The red berries add a lot too.
The dof is perfect and right where it should be...the eye.
Good job Rick!!!
Congrats :-)
